Benefits Of A Garden Office Shed

In recent times, more and more people are now working for themselves, but may not be required to attend a particular office or location in order to undertake your employment. Also, more people are investing in space to relax and pursue personal projects. But whatever your current circumstances, it’s very likely that you’ve thought about investing in a garden office shed at some point.

This addition to your property is the perfect solution for those who wish to have their own unique space in which to work and relax. Here are a few reasons why you should seriously consider following your gut instinct and install a garden office shed.


Being closer to nature is proven to be beneficial to our mental and physical health. Locating your place of work to right in the middle of your garden means that you can treat yourself to a break from the hustle and bustle of the outside world and instead allow yourself the opportunity to focus your mind and enjoy some peace and quiet.

Installing large windows, glass doors and skylights – resulting in extra access to natural light and views of the surrounding area – will enhance your enjoyment of the time you spend in the new structure even further, so you get plenty of use out of it for the investment you make!

Perfect privacy

Your garden office is a space that should be tailored to you. You are in control and can focus on your work with no interruptions, distractions, or prying eyes. It serves as a place to think, as well as a place to which you can always escape.  Consider it your own private den!

You can “go to work” while working from home

Many self-employed or remote workers prefer to feel as though they are actively “going to work” to aid in their sense of motivation. It makes sense to set aside a space in which work is to take place that is separate from the spaces in which you live and enjoy leisure time. With one of our garden office sheds you can leave your house and move into a separate zone of productivity in a way that incurs no commuting costs whatsoever and takes up hardly any time at all. In the long run, investing in an outdoor office shed will work out far cheaper than renting or owning your own office on an ongoing basis too.

Your space, your rules

It’s wonderful to have the chance to take ownership of your own territory and surround yourself with things that you love. Forget decorating a poke desk with a couple of picture frames and pot plants – you can choose the design of your garden office shed from start to finish, without the threat of change or any rules to follow.

You don’t even need planning permission!

It’s extremely easy to get confused about planning permission when it comes to putting up new structures on your property – with this being one of the main aspects that put people off acquiring a garden office. However, more often than not, you’ll find that these particular buildings require no permission whatsoever to be erected! They are considered Permitted Development, when means as long as you follow a few simple rules, you’re safe to proceed.

It is important to note that your outdoor office shed should not be used as self-contained accommodation, nor should it feature an antenna or stand closer to the nearest road than your house. If it is to stand closer than two metres from the building, it should measure no taller than two and a half metres from ground level.

If you plan to erect it at a greater distance than two metres from the boundary of your property, its eaves can measure no more than two and a half metres from ground level, with the maximum height for a pent or mono-pitched roof shed being three metres. With this extending to four metres at its highest point for a dual-pitched roof.

As long as you stick to these rules, no planning permission will be required for your garden office shed.
